Oh my God, you got to me bad with that one, Glenna. I’m so sorry about Jasper. Your superb writing really drew me in.

The way you see it up made me dread the outcome, but I stayed curious and hopeful for you right through.

The woman at the shelter and Jasper’s adoption was unexpected enough to make the ending really satisfying.

I mean, I know it’s your actual life, but your story-telling technique made it so compelling.
